STOCKTON (CBS13) – Twenty-three people are behind bars after a major gang sweep spearheaded by Stockton Police Department. Investigators seized various weapons and narcotics after a citywide raid on Wednesday.

“Getting gang members, violent criminals, weapons and narcotics off our streets is an ongoing process to make Stockton the best that it can be,” said Eric Jones, Stockton Police Chief.

The people arrested face more than 60 felony charges combined for offenses including possession of narcotics, conspiracy, theft, promoting gang activity and more.

“This was an outstanding operation to dismantle a very violent gang in Stockton,” Jones said at press conference on Thursday.

For the last two years, Stockton Police Department has its eyes on the North Side Gangster Crips. Police Chief Eric Jones called on several agencies including the Stockton FBI, Tracy PD, and ATF. Together, they tackled Operation Blue Storm: the joint effort to take down the gang.

Nearly 200 miles away, investigators found more drugs and guns in Reno and arrested 11 more people. They believe many NSGC members were then bringing guns back to sell in Stockton.

The investigation also uncovered the alleged involvement of a San Joaquin County Correctional Officer: 31-year-old Ashley Johnson. According to Stockton PD documents, investigators seized one gun from Johnson’s residence.

According to San Joaquin County Sheriff Steve Moore, Johnson had only been working at San Joaquin County Jail for less than a year. She was fired on the spot during her arrest on Wednesday.
